MLXchange – Minimum Operating Requirements

Do You Have the Right Computer and Software? MLXchange is a highly sophisticated online software application. Just like programs that run directly on your computer, MLXchange has system requirements. For MLXchange to function properly, you must use the Internet Explorer browser on a computer running Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Vista. Sometimes our Customer Support Center takes calls from members working with Windows 98 or Windows ME, but unfortunately these outdated operating systems cannot run all the features of MLXchange. If you are running one of these old operating systems, our technical support professionals will be unable to help you troubleshoot technical issues. Minimum Operating Requirements: (Minimum Standard) - Microsoft Windows Vista or Microsoft XP operating system with Service Pack 3 or higher - Minimum Hardware: PC with 1.8 GHz Intel Pentium 4 (or equivalent) with 256 KB integrated L2 cache, 512 MB RAM and 100 MB of available hard disk storage space or more. - Recommended Hardware: PC with 2.8 GHz, Intel Pentium 4 (or equivalent) with 512 KB integrated L2 cache, 1 GB RAM and 100 MB of available hard disk storage space or more. - 1024 x 768 at 96 DPI resolution video adapter and monitor - Bi-directional Internet access with a 56 kbps connection speed (higher speed cable modem, DSL, or faster is recommended)

Supported Browsers/Operating Systems: - Internet Explorer 7 on Windows XP (Home Professional) Service Pack 3 - Internet Explorer 7 on Windows Vista - Internet Explorer 8 on Windows XP (Home or Professional) Service Pack 3 - Internet Explorer 8 on Windows Vista Service Pack 1 If you are not sure what version you are using, open Internet Explorer and click on Help then About Internet Explorer. If you need to upgrade, go to http://www.microsoft.com/ie and click “Get It Now” to be taken to the page to download Internet Explorer Version 8. **You will need to verify that all of the programs on your computer will work with Internet Explorer 8 before upgrading.

Recommended Screen Resolution: Your screen resolution on your PC should be set at 1024x768. 800 x 600 is not supported. To check or change your resolution, right click on your desktop, select Properties and then click on Settings.

DPI (Dots Per Inch) Resolution Setting: Your DPI setting on your monitor should be set at 96 DPI (Normal Size). To check or change your resolution, right click on your desktop, select Properties, click on Settings and then Advanced  

Use Internet Explorer: In order to use MLXchange successfully, Internet Explorer is the only browser you should use. Do not use other browsers such as AOL, MSN, Firefox, Opera, Safari, etc.

Don't Go Back. When using MLXchange, do not use the Back button on the Internet Explorer toolbar, but rather make a habit of using the navigational buttons within the MLXchange application. Clicking on the Back button could produce error messages.

MLXchange - PC Setup and Preparation Checklist

Important PC Settings for MLXchange – Six Easy Steps To configure your computer for optimum use with MLXchange, please follow the five easy steps. These settings are required in order to perform all the functions within MLXchange. Step One

Turn Off Pop-up Blockers: MLXchange does not work properly if you have pop-up blockers turned on. If you have a pop-up blocker or several pop-up blockers enabled, you will need to turn them off or allow pop-ups from MLXchange. This includes any add-on toolbars (e.g., Google, Yahoo, etc.).

Step Two

Install ActiveX Controls. Before you log into MLXchange, you need to download some small files to provide added performance, security and functionality. Go to http://mfr.mlxchange.com/ax and then click the install button on the page. Depending on your PC settings, Internet Explorer may not automatically download these programs. Internet Explorer will display a very light yellow line just below the toolbar at the top of the screen. You will need to click on that line to accept the ActiveX downloads. You should see red checks as the files are installing. ** Windows NT, 2000 or XP Operating System on Office Network. If you experience a problem loading MLXchange and your computer uses the Windows NT, 2000, XP or Vista operating system, you must be logged into Windows as an Administrator, so that MLXchange has permission to configure the browser. If you are using an office computer and you do not have Administrator privileges, contact your office manager or system administrator.

Step Three

Internet Explorer Setting. Open Internet Explorer, click on Tools. Click on the General Tab, scroll down to Settings under Browsing History. Enable or click on the radio button option that says “Every Time I visit the Web Page Page” and click OK.  

General Tab: Click on Settings (middle of the box next to delete in the Browsing History area). Enable or click on the radio button option that says “Every Time I visit the Web Page” and click OK. Recommended Disk Space: 100-250 MB.

Button to Your Listings in the MLS to Get More Showings Why add the "Schedule a Showing" button to your listings? 1. Get showing requests 24/7 (mention the button on your after-hours phone message) 2. Reduce phone calls to your front desk 3. More secure - know who is really asking 4. Sell your listings faster with more showings Do it in less than 5 minutes: 1. Login to your MLS. 2. Go to the listing you want to activate. 3. Select "Enable ShowingTime" or "Configure ShowingAssist" or a similarly worded link (your login page may look slightly different than the example on the left).

Click the Listing Setup tab, then: 1. Activate the listing -- Click 'ON' to activate the 'Schedule a Showing' button for this listing. 2. Select the showing type -- You can specify if an appointment is required, or if the showing agent only needs to view showing instructions (ie., vacant properties with lockboxes). 3. Indicate who gets notified -- Add e-mail addresses of the people to be notified of showings. That's it. To save time, agents can activate all of their listings at one time from the Agent Setup tab. Likewise, office staff can activate the entire office's listings from the Office Setup tab. The steps are the same as above. To view a recorded demo of how to use ShowingAssist, visit www.showingtime.com/assist and choose your MLS for a customized tutorial.
